Anvil or Hammer

I’m just glad to make it

Posted in Grip,Gym Strength by Mike on November 10, 2007

As you may understand, I was a little uncomfortable when Dan text to ask if I was going to deadlift last evening. I figured there was only one way to find out if I was good again. So we went through pretty much the same workout I started on last week.

Sumo Deadlift
225 X 5
315 X 5
405 X 7

Situps +60lbs X 20

Conventional Deadlift 405 X 10

Leg Lift 30

Good Mornings 80K X 11

Roman Chair Situps + 5K X 20

Leg Press 600 x 11

Squirm X 50

Sidebend 60K X 9/9

Suitcase Deadlift 60K 10/10

I’m glad to say I made it through. I’m sure a couple of my deadlifts wouldn’t count to a lot of judges cause I was overly cautious about pushing through the top of it too far. I don’t care, I’m not all jacked up today like last week and that makes me happy.

Before Dan even got there I managed a clean and Jerk with 100K and I got five tens with each hand (video to follow) which knock one more off my list, psyched.

    Liar – Liar! 5 tens left and right by mister “I’m no good at grip”. Can you guys spell “sandbagger” for Gripmas – haha. Great Job Mike!! What brand of plates are you using for the lift?

  2. Mike said,

    yeah yeah, I know. I need to stop whining about my grip. I can’t say I’m real confident in it but I’ll stop whining. Hopefully Gripmas will give me a real idea of where I lie in the world.

    oh, and the plates are, I believe they are Yorks. They aren’t labeled but our dumbells are about they same age and are definitely York. Considering geography, it would make sense as well.
